MOFO 2018: MONUMENTAL

12 Jan 2018 - 13 Jan 2018

THE HOLY BODY TATTOO & GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR

 

AUSTRALIAN EXCLUSIVE!

 

MONA FOMA presents
MONUMENTAL
by The Holy Body Tattoo
with live music by Godspeed You! Black Emperor

 

MONA FOMA, aka MOFO, is a festival of music and the arts that marks the height of the Tasmanian summer, adding spark to the season's festivities since 2009. Now in its tenth year, the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) extends MOFO beyond Hobart and surrounds to include a mini-MOFO event in Launceston in 2018.

“How do you resign yourself to something that will never be? You stop wanting that thing, you go numb or you kill the agent of desire.”
-
Jenny Holzer

The Holy Body Tattoo will unleash riotous and revelatory contemporary dance in concert with a soaring (and effing loud) score performed live by Montreal’s celebrated post-rockers, Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Not to mention film projections, light sculptures, textual elements and the existential crisis of the daily grind. Launnie, you’re in for a treat.

 

Director: Dana Gingras
Choreographer: Noam Gagnon & Dana Gingras
Music: Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Producer: Animals of Distinction
